Gonna redoo a woo

This Daewoo section is about as slow as the HAC7 forum.
Think Gunplumbers para stock hinge pins look to be almost drop in for the Daewoo folder hinge. Going to convert a couple, well at least one of my DRs to factory side folders. Got one stock anyway, will see if a Galil or FN folder will adapt to the ar100 receiver.

Iím glad to see some Ďwoo activity! Good luck on your build, and please keep us updated.

Iím in need of a replacement stock for an AR-100. Please PM me if you have a source or a spare youíd be willing to part with. The jackass I bought it from did a very poor packing job, and UPS denied any responsibility. Iíve had it for 4 years and havenít even shot it due to the cracked stock!

If the stock's already f***** up, is there a reason you can't affect an epoxy repair?

No reason not to, but itís pretty low on my priority list of things to do, and Iíd much rather just have an unfukced stock.

That a nice early upper and bolt carrier. How did you manage to come across just receivers? Yes, this forum is very slow, but not a ton of Woo's out there and esp not that many used. Keep us up to date if can.

Galil stock is not going to work w/o making you own hinge and joint setup.

I enjoyed unbanning my DR-200, but after finding several accessories, to include an original 'Woo bipod a few months back, I hit a 'Woo desert.

I look forward to seeing your build progress.

Regarding unbanning of the Woo, are the post ban muzzle devices silver soldered on? Blind pinned? How much difficulty have folks had in removing them?

silver soldered. not too much difficulty in removing it but the parkerization can discolor. also the threads are really long to where you need a jamb nut if you want to use a standard ar15 1/2 x 28 flash hider.

While this is generally true (the one that I currently have is soldered), some were also welded. I received one NIB from a distributor back in the day that had such a heavy weld bead around the device that you could see the burn marks in the bore. Needless to say, that one went back and was replaced by them...

Just sayin'...

I am pulling the muzzle device off my Wolf A1 (Type 91) upper to put on the correct Taiwan muzzle device, and was going to recycle the Wolf A1 device and jamb nut onto my 'Woo once I pull off the ban era cone of shame.

Just seeing if the OP has any progress to post. I have been striking out on sourcing Woo parts since I bought my Korean marked gas regulator and my bipod.

Think it was the above upper that I got the fake hider off. Initially I cut the hider longways with dremel towards the muzzle and tried to drive chisel in cut to split the hider(read method somewhere) but it didn’t work. Ended up noticing ID of hider was bigger than OD of barrel and put hider in vise and squeezed it down enough where the solder let go and just screwed it off. Well Wish I’d have tried that first!

DRs I want to convert to orig folders. Like them as they are but canít get much more desirable than the factory side folder.

The stock trigger in my AR-100 (K2) Woo was about 10 pounds and gritty.
An AR-15 trigger set from Rock River dropped right in the Woo's lower.
The only issue is the AR-15 pins are shorter than the Woo's.
The Woo pins are the same diameter so I just installed the trigger set with the Woo pins.
Works great in mine.

The factory triggers are horrible, AR is the way to go. The geometry is very slightly different for the selector and you need re-use the woo one for the pin length. I've found that it's sometimes necessary to shave the back-end of the AR trigger so that it doesn't bind when used with the woo selector.

cheers,
